This beautiful girl to the left is one of my granddaughters. I was lucky enough during the Easter holidays to be with her and get some much needed new photos.
In this post I am going to show the steps to this process and explain just a little how this is done.
This is not quite the finished product as it has not been pressed. I also am going to add a few more things when I get time. Looks like her doesn't it?
The first step is to do some computer manipulation in PSE to create a posterization. This gives you the pattern you will follow.
Here I have selected the four value shades of light gray/dark gray. It looks like I have covered some of the fabric up, but you get the idea.
Cutting out layer one. Isn't it amazing how much of this images comes up with just two values of fabric?
Cutting layer two. Here I have added the third layer of value. It's coming together isn't it?
Just about finished. I have a few things I need to do to this layer before I press all the layers together.
This is such a fun technique to do, the students are always excited with the end results. In a few weeks I will have some student images to share.

I really wanted to get this done before I posted so I spent more time in the studio tonight than normal. Wanted to try the rose in red. What do you think? Shades of gray or red?
